Well of course the planner in me would tell you that there is no such thing as a “perfect gift” that fits every bride or groom. But I have say, this comes pretty close. Not in the sense that this will get “used” the most like new dishes or the perfect knife set (I strongly recommend registering for a tomato knife, it will change your life), and not in the sense of of satisfying the “need” category like an actual good vacuum or wine glasses that don’t have a vineyard’s logo on it (yes, wine glasses are a need in my book). But this is a gift of different meaning – a gift of sentiment. A gift that will be kept forever and touch anyone’s heart.
I had the fortune of meeting the lovely Lindsey Passen just a month ago at a soiree, and of course immediately fell for her delightful personality and chic style. It was only then that I found out that she was an artist, as all cool people are. Even better? She specializes in drawing bridal gown illustrations! My heart melted and I instantly knew we had to be friends.
So remember that feeling how your fell in love with your dress and you couldn’t stop looking at a picture of it every day and you would just *sigh*. Now think of how cool fashion designers are (Project Runway anyone?) and you see them sketching their fab ideas on paper which look like mini pieces of art in their own right. This is kinda the reverse. The talented Lindsey Passen takes an image of YOU in your gown, then goes backwards and whips up a delectable drawing of you in your gown for you to keep forever. It’s your own artists sketch of what your dress is, on you, as art. So that fortune you spent on the gown? Not gone to waste, because it’s essence has now become artwork on your wall! And the best part? You don’t have to starve yourself to fit into it again because you’ll forever be remembered as that perfect size!
Whether for yourself, your sister, your bff or someone who deserves a bad ass gift, Gown Illustrious is the way to go. Or you could always just leave the website open for your new spouse to see … Check out Lindsey’s work here and learn more about her process and how you can get your one of a kind image and the perfect gift!
